Hello Lumberjocks!

Pictured here is the Santa paper towel holder that I use on my service truck. It works great to prevent the paper towels from getting lost or damaged; and, I love opening the door and seeing Santa all year long!
It is made from 3/4” plywood and cedar. I finished it using Rustoleum paint and Americana acryllic craft paints. Because it is on a work truck (see last picture) that gets rather dusty at times, I put several coats of Helmsman’s Spar Urethane over the whole thing so it would be easy to dust off and keep clean. The pattern for this project as well as the plastic eyes came from Meisel Hardware . I popped the lenses out of an old pair of sunglasses for Santa’s eyewear. The post that holds the paper towels was a cutoff from a maple spindle for a stairway railing. The brass ball on the top of the post is a drawer pull.

Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays!
